    @davidnotcoulthard – they all recorded the Fastest Lap whilst winning their first Grand Prix?

    @hunocsi – Nice one!

    Try this:

    Rubens Barrichello
    Gerhard Berger
    Mark Webber
    Keke Rosberg

    The only drivers to win Le Mans and a Formula One Grand Prix in the same year?

    @keithcollantine – works for me. I am well and truly stumped on this one… I wouldn’t like to admit how long I’ve spent on Pedro Diniz’s Wikipedia entry the last few days! … should probably get some work done!

    They’ve all had a previous World Champion as team-mate at some stage?
    Hill (Prost/Senna/Mansell)
    Alonso (Villeneuve/Raikkonen/Button)
    Ricciardo (Vettel)
    Diniz (Hill)

    Again… I imagine that’s too straight forward, so I’ll do some more digging and try again!

    I’ll start the ball rolling with:
    1) All teams who have won the WCC
    2) All teams who have had Jenson Button as a driver

    I don’t expect either of those are correct – so I’ll add a smidge more detail to one guess!

    Teams who have had a driver leave the team immediately after winning the championship?
    Button – Brawn – 09
    Hill – Williams – 96
    Alonso – Renault – 06
    Prost – McLaren – 89

    Enjoying this game!

    @hunocsi – this is probably quite a stretch, but are they all Grand Prix where the Constructors Championship has been decided only once?

    Malaysian GP – 2000 – Ferrari
    Hungarian GP – 2004 – Ferrari
    Indian GP – 2013 – Red Bull
    Portuguese GP – 1993 – Williams

    To be honest, I didn’t check all the other years for Portugal and Hungary, so this may well be wrong!

    I’ve been thinking/searching for ages for something more detailed than @theawesomefish came up with… but I reckon he’s right!

    @jackysteeg – That’s right, they’ve all scored points for more than one team in a single season.

    Andrea de Cesaris – Sauber/Jordan 1994
    Jean Alesi – Prost/Jordan 2001
    Daniil Kvyat – Red Bull/Toro Rosso 2016
    Max Verstappen – Toro Rosso/Red Bull 2016

    Of course there are more examples of this in the earlier years of F1, but surprisingly few in the last 20/30 years (including Sebastian Vettel). Would be interested to know if anyone found any more!

    Looking forward to the next question :-)

    Incidentally, Sebastian Vettel could also join this club…

    @theawesomefish – apologies, I wasn’t clear… there’s an additional detail that stops Frentzen joining under the criteria I am looking for, not your ‘most recent season’ guess.

    It’s not as tenuous as your latest guess either :-)

    So to confirm – you’re on the right track with swapping teams mid-season… I’ll give you a clue: look at the results for each driver in those seasons.

    @theawesomefish – those are the respective seasons I’m looking for, and you’re right, but there’s an additional detail that stops people like Frentzen (2001) joining the list… you’re very close!

    @lolzerbob – 90% there… I was looking for a small amount of extra detail on top – which I’m sure you’ll now get! :-)

    @brickles – that’s not what I was looking for, though an interesting coincidence (de Cesaris had his first podium in his second full year). Good guess though!

    Any more?
